Update On Lamar's Eye Surgery

****For those interested, I have a book giveaway going on HERE!****

Lamar finally walked in the door from his surgery in Memphis at 1 am Friday morning. After finally going into the OR at 8 pm Thursday night he was released to go home at 9:30 pm. After a 2 hour drive home from Memphis, they still had to take Jessica home and stop at a Wal*green's pharmacy to fill a pain med prescription.

Lamar hadn't had anything to eat for over 24 hours so he was starving. The only place still open at midnight in Jonesboro was McDon*alds so they stopped for a quick burger before coming back here. Lamar's Mom let him out and headed home. It was nearly 1:30 am when she called to tell us she'd made it safely home.

Lamar's eye is patched and will remain that way until the eye specialist removes it when Lamar sees him on Friday morning. Lamar's appointment is at 10 am and we hope after the doctor removes the patch that we'll be able to tell if the surgery has helped improve the vision in his eye.

As soon as I find out anything new I'll post another update.

Lamar is settled in bed, trying to unwind and get some sleep before he has to get up and be at the Drs. office at 10 am. I'm headed that way soon myself. I'll have Emmy again as usual so I need to get some sleep too. It has been one more long and seemingly unending day.

Thanks to each and every one of you for your prayers and warm caring concern on Lamar's and my behalf. You are appreciated and loved more than I can ever express, dear friends and family.

Y'all have a wonderful and blessed Friday, and Happy Weekend!

I have obviously missed something, too many visitors!

What's wrong with his eye? I still wish the best even though I don't know what was wrong. Maybe you can fill me in????
